Steve Bannon, the Breitbart voice of populist, nationalist and racist US, is waging war on the Republican Party. A strategist said “He’s funded by billionaires, he has a shallow, catchy message that appeals to marginally-educated fanatics, and his skill at asymmetric warfare seems formidable.”
It may be that he is channelling the tr Uranus square the USA Mercury opposition Pluto, running till spring 2018, which on past form has spewed up right-wing fanatics like McCarthy and caused deep unease about government. On that theory he may well implode, despite the fear he is creating at the moment. His Uranus is conjunct the USA Mercury and his North Node is conjunct the US Pluto – so he hooks into the uglier side of the country.
He does look upbeat this December/January 2018 with tr Uranus square his Jupiter/Pluto midpoint. But it’s all downhill thereafter with tr Pluto square his Mars/Neptune from February 2018 onwards till late 2019 which usually turns hopes into ashes; plus an enthusiasm and ambition-denting tr Neptune opposition his Sun/Jupiter midpoint from March onwards into early 2019. Thereafter it’s very mixed for him with wild over-confidence running into a brick wall as his Solar Arc Mars opposes his Jupiter and then Solar Arc Pluto is conjunct his Saturn. With similar in 2020 to 2023 as tr Pluto is in a gung ho opposition to his Jupiter/Pluto and then moves onto a catastrophic-disaster square to his Mars/Saturn. His past career is littered with failures and arguments and the leopard doesn’t change his spots.
He’s even falling out with his patron and financier Robert Mercer from late this November with tr Saturn square the composite Mercury, Sun, Mars and in 2018 the composite Venus and Uranus; plus a disappointing and suspicious tr Neptune opposition the composite Saturn. Ditto his relationship with Trump which is heading south from March next year with tr Neptune opposition the composite Sun Saturn.
